Environmental regulations, restrictions and limitations intended to promote sustainable communities, and their respective industrial, land use, development, transportation and environmental conditions, do not tend to fit or integrate well with long-standing practices of local government or private business; and have had a largely disruptive impact on local government, communities and commerce, while making little progress toward the goals of environmental initiatives and regulations. The comprehensively proactive nature of the American Monorail Project would facilitate the integration of environmental goals and policy into its implementation strategies in a system that balances the full range of transportation-related issues and opportunities presented by monorails’ independent systems design, alone.
Monorail planning and development processes can form a structure in which environmental, economic, transportation and community planning policies are given equal consideration and influence in shaping transportation systems and services, as opposed to current practices of force fitting of regulations and restrictions into the processes of developing transportation systems that meet the needs of their respective communities and urban settings.
